Wedding Grazing Tables: Amazing Grazing at The Hall Barns
Wedding grazing tables are one of the hottest wedding trends of the year, with lots of couples now swapping tradition for something seriously scrumptious. Whether you want something a little different for your wedding lunch or you’re looking to get your guests mingling over canapes, feast your eyes on our top tips for amazing grazing!
At The Hall Barns we love nothing more than seeing how our couples step away from traditions and embrace new ideas and trends. Wedding grazing tables are relaxed yet luxurious, and give you huge versatility in styling and design. If you’re having a more luxury wedding, there’s no reason your grazing table can’t be just as decadent as a three-course meal!
Wedding grazing tables are essentially charcuterie boards on a much larger scale, and the options for personalising them are endless. Whether you have a chic Italian-inspired celebration or a day that’s bursting with colour, your grazing table can reflect this; think Serrano ham and fresh breads, or colourful fruits and vibrant crudites…They really are crowd-pleasers when it comes to catering, and we love seeing your guests mingling and chatting at The Hall Barns as they explore the delights on offer.
If you really have your heart set on a relaxed three-course wedding lunch but are seriously tempted by the idea of a grazing table, you could swap out your canapes for a mini grazing version. Alternatively, you could have the evening food served grazing-style! Check out our options for your wedding food and drink on our website.

At The Hall Barns we pride ourselves on gathering the finest ingredients, from charcuterie prepared, cured and aged in the larders here to fruits and vegetables of the highest quality in the country.
